So, last night when i tried to charge my iPod it wouldnt turn on. At all. And it was not recognized by my portable iPod charger. But this morning, when i turned it on, an exclamation point icon would appear next to a half-charged battery bar, then it would switch to the apple logo, then turn off.

However, a couple of minutes ago i tried charging it again and got the same thing, but this time, when i took out the charger, the apple logo glitched. It almost seemed like the screen was shifted upward, and then, instead of showing the battery logo, the glitched screen just faded out. And then the same thing happened again when i turned it on.

I went to another forum and was told that the best thing i should try would be to just leave it in the charger for a few days until it comes back to life, however on the "iPod wont turn on" page here, it seemed like the best idea would be to just ignore it for 24 hours and then try charging it/resetting it again. What can i do to get my iPod working?

    An update: I waited 24+ hours and then immediately plugged it into my charger. It's been there for...almost 2 hours now, and as soon as i plugged it in, the apple logo came up, then the screen just faded while the iPod made a sound that resembled that of something turning off.

    It's been doing this (apple logo pops up, screen fades and makes sound, apple logo pops up again, repeat.) since i first plugged it in.

    That happend to my friend once.

    She just left it on the charger over night, and now her iPod works fine.

    Also, she read that the iPod's battery display isn't always accurate...if that helps.

    I hope it works for ya!

    Well, it's working now. This was really weird, apparently it was my wall charger. Not only would it not charge my ipod, but it actually prevented it from working.

    Anyway, i brought it to the Best Buy where i bought it to redeem the warranty, and the guy there plugged it into HIS charger...and it worked. It reset and started charging.

    I didn't even think it was even possible for a WALL CHARGER of all things, to actually kill an iPod...but whatever. It's fixed now. Problem Solved.
